It depends on where you work. As a physiotherapist working in a mental health unit, that's my bread and butter listening to incontinence issues and some other weird stories. However, good on you for listening. They feel appreciated and wanted just being listened to.

I'm going to guess you work in a pharmacy? People always assume that Associates have the expertise of the Pharmacist, and that the Pharm is a doctor. I feel for you.

I'm not a physiotherapist but I'm pretty sure people who listen to others problems and help with their mental health is a psychotherapist, psychologist, or even a regular therapist. I'm also probably gonna get down voted.

If you work in healthcare, you don't just do your clinical duties alone. There are other duties of care you need to be able to provide effectively. Just because I'm a Physio doesn't mean I can't listen to patients. Listening is part of communication and isn't necessarily only for a psychologist to provide. How will you like it if your relative was talking to me about something sensitive during a therapy session and I said, this isn't my job..wait for a psychologist??? Also listening is a good way of knowing if safeguarding needs to be put in place.. Especially for vulnerable adults and children.

Look on the bright side, now you can have stories to tell other people. Also if you're good at writing, you could make an amazing book called "The weird and wacky adventures of Matthew McGee" from those stories.
